Abstract:

The Farm-P Reduction Planner tool (Farm-PREP) is designed to help farm management planners to quantify the reductions in farm-scale P losses achieved through modifications to field-level practices. Farm-PREP includes an optimization tool that will identify potential combinations of practices across multiple farm fields that will enable a targeted reduction in P loss. The tool has now been expanded for use throughout the entire state of Vermont, both within and outside of the Lake Champlain Basin. The tool has been further tested and significant enhancements have been made through a stakeholder feedback process. Farm-PREP Training workshops held throughout Vermont exposed a broad group of agricultural professionals to Farm-PREP, both providing education and serving as a platform for further user feedback.
